09 Aug Pay for buying a home?
I’ve been wanting to buy a house for some time, but I’m short of time, I get dizzy in real estate portals, I get shown apartments that don’t interest me at all, I can’t find what I want, I don’t know the city, I get lost with the paperwork, I can’t see the possible reform… I’m exhausted!
These tend to be the main reflections of any Real Estate Personal Shopper’s clients to explain why they decided to hire the services of a professional to help them in finding the house they need and relying on someone to defend their interests as the buyer’s agent, being on their side and and not on the seller’s side as has happened for many years in the sector.
Hiring the services of a professional has a cost, whether it’s to find a house, to defend us in court or to assist us in a recruitment process, but if the services I get bring me important advantages and benefits, the cost will have become an investment.
There are many advantages to be obtained hiring the services of a Real Estate Personal Shopper. The first and often the most obvious is the time you save since in most cases the time spent in finding housing can be reduced up to 70%. Another advantage is not getting lost in the vast market supply, selecting only homes to visit after truly understanding the client’s needs and the type of house you’re looking for. It’s not only about listening to characteristics like size, neighborhood or house distribution that the customer wants, it’s about understanding your tastes, lifestyle, current situation and future expectations, hobbies and even your degree of flexibility to adapt to different proposals or budget constraints.
But the process doesn’t end with finding the house, once we’ve found the house that really suits us the Real Estate Personal Shopper keeps helping us throughout the process. She will negotiate on your part obtaining better results since negotiations are most beneficial when no emotions are involved.
In addition, the Real Estate Personal Shopper will obtain the maximum information on the property, it’s general state, the community, the neighbors and possible hidden defects in the purchase. She will accompany you throughout the whole process until the signing of the deed of sale. And, since in most cases the house will need an update, she will provide professional contacts for the reform and the decoration providing expertise in the evaluation of the different proposals. Not to mention monitoring the reform should it be necessary.
But above all, her greatest value is positioning herself as the “Buyer Agent” only defending your interests since she has no business relationship with the seller.
Aren’t all these services worth it? Those who understand, appreciate and value them will not mind paying the services of a Real Estate Personal Shopper to find the house they are looking for.
